Joe the Plumber was the star of the first 15 minutes of the final presidential debate on Wednesday night. But who is he?
Last weekend, while Barack Obama was canvassing for support in the small town of Holland, Ohio, the Democratic nominee ran into a tall, bald man, since dubbed Joe the plumber. He asked Obama if he believed in the American Dream — he said he was about to buy a company that makes more than $250,000 a year and was concerned that the Democratic nominee would tax him more because of it.
Joe the plumber was mentioned 11 times at the beginning of the debate, nine times by McCain and twice by Obama.
